“DISGUSTED!” Waka Flocka Takes A Stand Against Racist Fraternity, Cancels Show

Known more for his inflammatory lyrics and raucous concerts than for his social activism, Atlanta rapper Waka Flocka Flame has decided to take a stand against racism at the University of Oklahoma, where he was set to perform later this April. Flocka’s response comes amidst controversy sparked by a viral video of the university’s chapter of the nationally-recognized Sigma Alpha Epsilon (SAE) fraternity. In the video, students belonging to the frat are heard chanting lyrics to a song that include references to lynching black people and the N-word. The rapper posted on his social media that he will no longer be performing at the school as planned.

Flocka voiced his opinion on his Instagram account, and appeared live on CNN yesterday evening, recalling the previous positive experiences he had performing at the school last year: “I really felt like I was down with the fraternity…. so for me to see that video like, ‘That’s really what y’all doing behind closed doors?’ That disgusted me.”
